Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a rule from scratch, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
- If you want to simply create a rule…that moves a message, based on who sent the message,…then the easiest way to do that…is to right click and choose rules always move.…But if we want to move a message on any other basis,…or do something different with the message…other than simply move it, then we need to create a rule.…We can start with a message, if we know…that it has some information in it that we want,…because, whenever we create a rule,…Outlook will pull values from the selected message.…So the first thing I want to do…is I want to create a rule to move a collection…of messages that are about creating avatars.…
This is work that Colleen's been doing…so I'm going to choose an avatars message,…and go to rules, create rule.…It's possible that this message would come…from Colleen, but it doesn't need to.…What I'm looking for is a message…that has the word avatar in it somewhere.…It could be in the subject, it could be…in the body, and it may or may not be sent only to me.…So I don't have enough options here,…
